Balvenie Castle, Dufftown, Scotland

Balvenie Castle, near Dufftown dates from the 1200s when Marjory, daughter of Fergus, the last Celtic Earl of Buchan married William Comyn, one of the new breed of Scottish noblemen. He became the new Earl and also Lord of Balvenie. It was either William or his son Alexander who built this castle in Glen Fiddich.

From this significant strategic position in Glen Fiddich, Balvenie Castle allowed the Black Comyn Earls to rule over this Celtic province for more than a century.
